Pumpkin Guts Bread

Last year when we were carving our Halloween pumpkins, I had a bit of an epiphany. Pumpkin is food, right? Yeah yeah yeah, there are different varieties, and the smaller ones are sweeter for making pies and what not. But I was wondering about all the guts from the carving pumpkins, and if we could use that for anything yummy. After all, it’s still pumpkin, right?

Armed with my question, I headed to the internet. Research is so much easier with the internet, isn’t it? I google everything.

Anywho… I found tons of recipes using pumpkin puree, and the “meat” of the pumpkin, but nothing using the guts. The stringy, slimy stuff is what I wanted to use.

I called a couple of experts and even they hadn’t heard of using the guts for anything. So… I was on my own to give it a whirl. But guess what… it worked! I didn’t even have to cook the guts, just tossed them in the food processor and spun them up.

Oh! But don’t forget to remove the seeds first. That was the most time consuming part of my whole experiment, lol.
